Two-minute Time Lord
Description:
Two-minute Time Lord is a commentary podcast about the BBC ' s popular family science fiction program, Doctor Who. We ' ll try to keep this context in mind as we review episodes, comment on the news of the moment, and otherwise pontificate: Doctor Who is not FOR a thirtysomething podcaster. It ' s for that nine-year-old behind the sofa. But his or her mum and dad have been invited along for the ride, as are those of us who were kids when Peter Davison first picked up a cricket bat. And we ' ll keep it to two minutes, because we ' re ALL in a hurry.

    While Doctor Who will never become so obscure that it can only be found with a hunting dog and a Ouija board, Chip is definitely on the pessmistic side when it comes to Doctor Who's next streaming home: HBO Max.

    Direct Podcast Download

    If you're searching for a Significant Other, how important is it that they be into the same things you are? If you're as immersed in Doctor Who fandom as Reality Bomb co-producer Joy Piedmont is, should a potential partner get into Doctor Who as well? The answer is more complicated than you might think.

    1 February 2017 (6:25am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 26 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Yeah, this is worth breaking a hiatus again.

    We've had just two years with him, and then a whole Wilderness Year without him (save an appearance on Class), and now we've found out that Series 10 and the following Christmas special will mark the end of Peter Capaldi's too-short run. Alyssa "@WhovianFeminism" Franke and I celebrate his time on the show, speculate on his final series, and prognosticate about what may follow.



  • 2MTL 420: No Capes?

    27 December 2016 (4:12am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    2MTL pops up its head like a prairie dog to weigh in on "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" and the end of the Wilderness Year, then retreats back into its burrow. But watch this space for news of a potential new podcasting project…



  • 2MTL 419: So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish

    30 June 2016 (1:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 5 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    2MTL may or may not return with the new season of Doctor Who, but I couldn't say goodbye without tipping my hat to the community of fans and podcasters that gave my life meaning during rough times and encouraged my creativity. What better way to do that, than by rerunning The Ood Cast's classic every-podcaster-and-the-kitchen-sink parody from Series 6, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"?

    Look for me on The Audio Guide to Babylon 5, occasional panels on The Incomparable Network, and…who knows? Who…nose…?



  • 2MTL 418: Throwback Review of "The Impossible Planet"

    29 June 2016 (5:02am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    One last Throwback Review before 2MTL falls into a black hole: "The Impossible Planet" is great for exactly the reason I missed.

    (NOTE: The ending of the podcast is an intentional nod…)



  • 2MTL 417: Throwback Review of "The Idiot's Lantern"

    19 June 2016 (3:52am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 53 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's been a while since we did a Throwback Review, so let's look back at Mark Gatiss's second episode of New Who, which feel surprisingly like a mashup of the classic series and 1966's Batman TV show.



  • 2MTL 416: Let Clara Kiss Jane

    3 June 2016 (2:16am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 7 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Alyssa, author of the Whovian Feminism blog (whovianfeminism.tumblr.com), wrote an essay called "A Love Letter to My Problematic Favs." In it, she said:

    I try to let myself love my favorite characters as much as I can, even when they can sometimes make me so uncomfortable I can't bear to watch them onscreen. I try to defend them against criticism I think is unfair (after all, female characters come in for a disproportionate amount of sexist criticism), while at the same time trying to keep my mind open to new critical perspectives.

    Maintaining a healthy perspective is tough, and we don't always strike the right balance. But ultimately, that challenge can be a rewarding experience. In struggling to come to terms with all the ways I love and have been let down by my problematic favs, I think I've become a better feminist and fangirl.

    Chip invited Alyssa to reflect a month later on what she wrote. As fate would have it, that turned out to be the same time that representation and fan entitlement became a hot topic.



  • 2MTL 415: Entitlement?

    1 June 2016 (3:45am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Is it "entitlement" to advocate for change in the media you consume? Are you a bad fan, or even a bully, if you want to see something different in Doctor Who? Maybe there's a difference between having an opinion on the internet and being a threat. Maybe we can do something about the latter without trying to shame the former.



  • 2MTL 414: Regeneration

    28 May 2016 (8:08pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 49 seconds

    Peoples of the Universe, please attend carefully.



  • 2MTL 413: Technophobia Phobia

    24 May 2016 (2:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 41 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Let's get this right out of the way: Big Finish's "Technophobia" is a triumphant return for the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble, almost as though Tennant and Tate never left.

    And that weirded me the heck out.



  • 2MTL 412: Signs and Portents

    8 May 2016 (3:33pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The news last week wasn't so much "news" as "tantalizing or terrifying hints of what might be in Doctor Who's future," including a possible writers room experiment and yet more machinations against the BBC itself.



  • 2MTL 411: Meeting Bill

    24 April 2016 (2:56am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 25 seconds

    Pearl Mackie is the new companion, Bill, introduced during a really big football game. I like what I see–both in the companion, and in the way the BBC brought her to us.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 47 minutes and 22 seconds

    At long last, 2MTL's interview from the Long Island Who stage with Noel Clarke in November 2015. Noel talks about his career outside Doctor Who, including his comic The Troop from Titan Comics and his upcoming film Brotherhood, as well as his evolution from "buffoon" to "badass" as Mickey Smith.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Mikayla, one of the hosts of The Web of Queer (Twitter), provides a great guest commentary (clocking in at an increasingly rare ACTUAL TWO MINUTES) about what you may be inadvertently communicating when you discuss whether the Doctor is, or should be, asexual or aromatic.

    The Management would like to apologize for the delay in this review. There was a holiday thing.

    Speaking of holiday things, how about the last Christmas special?



  • 2MTL 404: Series 9 in Review (Part Two with The Writers' Room)

    7 January 2016 (12:10am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 35 minutes and 17 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Thanks to the holidays, this huge Time Dilation edition of the podcast was almost literally 404. Thanks so much to Kyle Anderson and Erik Stadnik of Doctor Who: The Writers' Room for joining me for an in-depth (believe me, once they get wound up about "Sleep No More"…) examination of Series 9.

    This podcast was recorded before "The Husbands of River Song" aired, about which more next time.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 55 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After millions of years of chipping away at a diamond wall, getting zapped by a creature from nightmares, and crawling to a teleporter to restart the cycle, I've released a podcast about "Heaven Sent."



  • 2MTL 400: "Face the Raven" Reviewed

    22 November 2015 (2:59am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The 400th episode of 2MTL coincides with the swan song of one Clara Oswald (and Chip is blissfully unaware of spoilers or synopses for the next two episodes, so he's going to hold to that position for now). And as modern companion departures go, there's been no equal.

    Check out Chip on The Incomparable Network's TeeVee podcast episode 118 for a longer conversation about "Face the Raven" with host Jason Snell.



  • 2MTL 399: "Sleep No More" Reviewed

    19 November 2015 (2:19am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    From Professor Rasmussen speaking to camera and the complete lack of opening titles to a barely present score and unusual "resolution" to the episode, "Sleep No More" broke all the rules of Doctor Who. Now I'm afraid it'll be harder to break them again.



  • 2MTL 398: "The Zygon Inversion" Reviewed

    Direct Podcast Download

    Just over halfway through Series 9, some fans have come to terms with the Sonic Sunglasses, and some are totally over them. Steven Moffat wouldn't have it any other way.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 34 seconds

    I really enjoyed "Before the Flood"–except for one thing that seems to be coming dangerously close to a trend in Doctor Who. And in this episode, as the Radio Times revealed, it was no accident.



  • 2MTL 392: "Before the Flood" Reviewed

    Far beyond wishing everyone at home a Merry Christmas, Toby Whithouse's "Before the Flood" opens with the show's most Fourth Wall-breaking moment yet, revealing once again how subversive the Moffat Era really is.

    Archetype, trope or formula? As we return to the "base under siege" style of Doctor Who storytelling, does writer Toby Whithouse do something fresh with it? And is it time for a serious talk about Clara?
